Be sure to head over to The Scrapping Stamper to see Shannon's other great sketch for October and to see the inspiring layouts created by her DT!!
Chain: I purchased some chain from the jewelry department at JoAnn's and applied the blue alcohol ink with a fine paintbrush. I mixed a couple colors of alcohol ink on my craft mat to get a color that would match the blue chain in the photo. I cut small pieces of glue dots to adhere the chain to the page. The chain eyelets were formed with craft wire wrapped once around a round tip plier and then twisted. I made the two pieces and then cut part of the twisted section off with wire cutters so they would be the same length.
Swing set: This was a fairly simple project. I located a photo of a swing set similar to the one this swing had hung from and recreated it in a wood-like paper. I cut strips of the paper and inked the edges before assembling my swing set. I alcohol inked the screw brads before adding to strategic spots.
Butterflies: These little butterflies started out as simple punched cut-outs. I brushed coordinating stickles across the wings, and Black Diamond Stickles over the bodies. When dry, I curled the wings over a round bar to add dimension. Such sweet little butterflies for pennies.
